Seeing With The Eyes of Faith

Young Woman Facing the Sky“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 (ESV)

Faith is something we need to continually exercise. If faith is the conviction of things not seen then how can our faith be strengthened? The Word of God reminds us that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. We can ask God to help our unbelief, but reading the Word will help our unbelief too. By visualizing what we are praying for and believing in Him to fulfill it, our faith will be strengthened (Habakkuk 2:2-3).

I hold on to the faith and vision God has given me. I see it happening at some point. I like public speaking, motivational speaking. God has opened some doors for me to speak, so I humbly pray and hold on to Habakkuk 2:2. I am exercising my faith by doing the small things God has asked me to do, and one day God will open bigger doors for me and for you too. Remember, with God nothing is impossible. When we pray, we must keep seeing what we are praying for, kind of like a moving camera. Hold the picture before you in your mind and believe it. When we see it, then we can speak it. When we pray it and speak it, our faith rises. When we back it up with scripture, the enemy can’t steal it from us. If God has given you a vision or a dream be patient and wait for it to come to pass. Sometimes it takes years before it happens. In the meanwhile keep praying, believing and thanking Him even before it comes to pass.
“Lord, I thank You for the vision and dreams You give us. May faith rise within us as we meditate on Your Word. Thank You for assurance, hope and faith. With You nothing is impossible.”

For His Glory
